I had a chance on my way back to Australia to visit the War museum and did find very intersting and more importantly very emotional to see what people can do to others. Never again.

The museum displays a sombre record of the Vietnamese struggle for independence. The exhibits tell a moving story of the genocide and war crimes committed in the region that is rarely narrated elsewhere.

There is only helicopter, tank, airplane, and few machine guns. A lot if history with poor pictures. Interesting to read, but you can do it on your phone too. With 40k dong entrance fee it's really not worth it.

Incredible experience. So sad, so moving, so unbelievably distressing that humans can do much damage in the name of war. This museum should never disappear
